Ce huitième album de The National se distingue par de petits grains de sable bienvenus dans la mécanique huilée du groupe américain, à commencer par la présence de nombreuses chanteuses venues apporter leur soutien au leader Matt Berninger sur la plupart des morceaux. On retiendra notamment la performance de Gail Ann Dorsey (bassiste de David Bowie) sur You Had Your Soul With You, ainsi que celles, particulièrement habitées, de Lisa Hannigan et Mina Tindle sur, respectivement, So Far So Fast et le très émouvant Oblivions. Pourquoi cette présence féminine soudaine au sein d’un groupe exclusivement masculin ? Sans doute parce que l’album est né après que le cinéaste Mike Mills a proposé à The National d’illustrer en chansons son moyen-métrage I Am Easy to find, qui se trouve être le portrait d’une femme. C’est donc le rapport aux images qui a mis un coup de pied dans la fourmilière de la pop du groupe de Brooklyn. On note par ailleurs, ici ou là, quelques références à certains classiques du cinéma, en particulier à Roman Holiday de William Wyler (1953).

Mais à part ces quelques nouveautés cinématographico-féminines, les admirateurs de The National retrouveront la mélancolie légendaire du groupe, à la fois dans les textes et la musique. On retiendra notamment la présence de nappes de cordes déchirantes sur tous les morceaux (seule exception : les violons staccato de Where Is Her Head), ainsi qu’un piano introspectif récurrent (en particulier dans le très beau Light Years). Quant à la rythmique si singulière de Bryan Devendorf, elle joue sur les contrastes puisqu’on trouve ici de percutantes saccades (RylanThe Pull of You), ou là un toucher sensuel (Hairpin Turns, I Am Easy to Find). © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Nick Cave, mauvaise graine de star

Nick Cave et ses Bad Seeds restent l’une des aventures les plus prolifiques de l’ère postpunk. Dès la fin des années 80, le magnétisme caverneux du chanteur australien atteignait un certain paroxysme, entre reprises furibardes, ballades au piano et rock’n’roll en sueur. Au fil des ans, le Cave s’est fait de plus en plus crooner, entre un Frank Sinatra punk et un Johnny Cash austère...

Kraftwerk, 50 ans d'avance

Groupe de musique électronique le plus influent de l’histoire, Kraftwerk, fondé par le duo Ralf Hütter et Florian Schneider, qui s’est éteint le 6 mai 2020 des suites d’un cancer, a toujours été en avance sur son temps. En avance sur la technologie, sur la composition, sur les performances scéniques, les Allemands ont prouvé au grand public que les machines étaient aussi capables d’émotions et ouvert la voie pour la techno, la new wave et même le hip-hop.

Warp, 30 ans de musique risquée

Le catalogue de Warp, la maison de disques qui a permis l’éclosion de certains des artistes les plus exigeants de la musique électronique, comme Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre ou Squarepusher, est désormais disponible sur Qobuz. L’occasion idéale pour revenir sur la destinée du label indépendant le plus respecté d’Angleterre.
